Xantrex Technology USA Inc. is supporting Ilchase, a firm that supplies data on storms to government agencies, universities and major television networks, in an ongoing weather research initiative.

Its work is featured in children's geography specials for National Geographic, “Storm Stories” for The Weather Channel and the TLC show “Beyond Tough.”

Ilchase has designed and built a mobile command vehicle called the Mobile Observation Operations Command Housing to help Ilchase and other emergency management companies in a stricken area. The vehicle is equipped with the technology to assist storm chasers in the field with real-time data and is on the road for several months at a time, as much as 20 hours a day.

Xantrex supplied its Freedom SW Inverter/Charger System to support the effort.

“Xantrex is pleased to continue its tradition of supporting organizations that impact the well being of communities around the world,” Xantrex director of sales John McMillan said in a statement. “We sponsored Ilchase’s mobile command vehicle with our Freedom SW Inverter/Charger System because it offers pure sine wave output and efficient, multistage charging that would allow this organization to power sophisticated electronics and equipment used for real-time data collection.”
